The character Adam Warlock is preparing to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe (UCM) in the next edition of the franchise, after being hinted at the end of the film ” Guardians of the Galaxy Vo.2″ (2017).
It is important to remember that “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2019)” ended in the middle of controversy, beyond the plot of the film, the dismissal of James Gunn, director of Vol. I and II, made the fans for the future of the saga; and, after being in DC and having directed his own “Suicide Squad”, Marvel rehired Gunn to direct a new project.
According to Deadline, Will Poutler has been cast in the part of Warlock in the third episode of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which will be directed by James Gunn and produced by Marvel President Kevin Feige.
Will Poutler, actor of “Black Mirror: Bandersnatch” (2018), “Midsommar” (2019), and “We’re the Millers” (2013), was rumoured to play Adam Warlock, with the rumour underlining that his “casting was too good.”
After the premiere of Poutler, the well-known actor of memes, James Gunn, confirmed the storey on social media, emphasising that he will visit the actor in a couple of weeks.
As you well aware, I am prone to dismissing misleading rumours. So… Will Poutler, welcome to the Guardian family. He’s a fantastic performer and a nice person. “I’ll see you in a couple of weeks,” Gunn said on Twitter.
Will Poutler rose to prominence as Kenny Miller in the classic film “We’re the Millers” (Where are the Millers?).
(2013), because his character was the one who became renowned on social networks, even becoming a netizens’ popular culture meme.
However, like with any other Marvel picture, the company is keeping plot elements under wraps until the film’s filming begins in November. The release date for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is set for May 5, 2023.
ADAM WARLOCK’S ORIGIN IN THE COMICS
Adam Warlock is a fictional character who appears in a number of Marvel Comics publications. It was developed by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1967 and was given the prefix “He,” first appearing in the pages of Fantastic Four, issue 66 in September 1967.
Some time later, Jim Starlin revamped the character and gave him his current appearance. The figure was popular in the 1970s and 1990s.
ADAM WARLOCK: WHO IS HE?
Warlock is an Eternal who was developed by the Enclave, a fictional subversive organisation of dictatorial-minded scientists. Its major goal is to employ sophisticated technology to build benevolent tyranny on a planetary scale under the rule of scientists.
Enclave was in charge of constructing the perfect human being: Adam Warlock, better known as Him, who instantly saw that his creators intended to utilise their abilities evilly and thus rebelled against them.
In the comics, Warlock is an artificial living being created by the organisation “Enclave”; thus Adam was born, who possesses super-human strength and endurance, allowing him to fly and shoot energy; and, furthermore, he owns his own soul gem; however, its history changed, because in the UCM, it will be a creation of the Kismet, a race of golden beings who fight with the Guardians of the Galaxy in the second instalment.
